Mickster was born to the blues and grew up with Eric and B.B. The sounds of the black blues guitar players music always struck the deepest part of my soul. But....life as a young teenager in the 60's got mixed in as well. The slashing chords of the Stones and the magical words of the Beatles found their way into my music too. Along came the Allman Brothers and Robert Cray.......and the new sound of the blues had a tough and rock steady beat that blasted it's way into my music....making everything new....though still the blues. Mickster will always hear a Les Paul guitar playing in his mind as he hums the melody to any song.
